If you’re the registered operator of a vehicle and opt in to trial the digital vehicle registration service, you'll:
- have immediate access to your current Certificate of Registration for your vehicle(s) in your MyServiceNSW Account
- receive your new Certificate of Registration in your MyServiceNSW Account after you've renewed registration
- receive a renewal reminder notification in your MyServiceNSW Account and by email, and/or Service NSW App around 6 weeks before your registration expires
- no longer receive a paper renewal notice/Certificate of Registration in the mail for your vehicle(s).
- You'll be able to view, download and print your Certificate of Registration at anytime in your MyServiceNSW Account.
- At the end of the pilot, you'll remain opted in to digital vehicle registration, unless you opt out.
You must be the registered operator of a vehicle which can be renewed online.
Note: Conditional registrations are excluded.
What you need
A MyServiceNSW Account.
- You can switch back to paper delivery at anytime and at no cost by opting out in your MyServiceNSW Account’s notification preferences. Remember to save a copy of your Certificate of Registration for your records before opting out. You may not receive a paper renewal notice if you opt out shortly before your registration expires.
- If you want a paper copy of your renewal notice, call 13 77 88.
- You’ll continue to receive a paper renewal notice for vehicles that do not meet the eligibility criteria.
- When you opt in, your MyServiceNSW Account will become your electronic address for service for your renewal notice and Certificate of Registration (it will no longer be your mailing address). If notices are currently being sent to a fleet manager or lease company, we will continue to use their address for service.
- If you currently receive reminders from Transport for NSW, you’ll start receiving reminders from Service NSW instead. If you choose to opt out at a later date, you'll go back to receiving reminders from Transport for NSW.
- Your Certificate of Registration confirms the details of your vehicle and its registration in NSW. It is not proof of ownership and you don't need it for your vehicle safety inspection.
- If you sell or dispose of your vehicle, you should submit a notice of disposal. The buyer will need proof of registration entitlement to transfer the vehicle into their name. Instead of a signed Certificate of Registration, you can provide a notice of disposal.
- It’s illegal to drive an unregistered vehicle and it’s your responsibility to renew your registration on time.
